Chileno Bay Sunrises are better than Sunsets

chileno bay sunset

One of my favourite jobs here is turning guests into morning people. I oversee the arrival experience and I'll know guests are fully immersed in Chileno Bay when they discover that sunrises in Cabo are different. I can't specifically say what makes them so. Maybe it’s the reflections off the white sand of the beaches, the adobe-coloured desert dunes or the deep sea at dawn, reminiscent of a Monet painting; but it’s truly a gift to greet each day this way and see light like that.

Element 52 Conquering a 14,000-Foot Summit

mountains and animals

Locals lovingly call them 14ers—the majestic, rugged mountains rising above 14,000 feet that are heavily concentrated in Colorado, which has the most of any state. The quest to dominate these treacherous summits has captivated many adventurers. “The Telluride area has 14 of the state’s 53 peaks,” Troy Trinh says. “My favorite, Wilson Peak, happens to be one of the toughest. You might recognize its northern face from the Coors Light can.”

Mayflower The Secrets of Steep Rock

mayflower hiking

Hiking has always set me at ease, and I look forward to trips to Connecticut for the serenity that comes with being immersed in the surrounding natural splendor. That’s exactly why I keep returning to the trails that wind along the Steep Rock Preserve. Not only does the 998-acres of idyllic hiking trails reveal sweeping viewpoints, lush hillsides, and babbling brooks with every step, but also unveils historic, hidden gems along the way.

Hacienda AltaGracia Sweet Secret

Good foundations are the premise of every Costa Rican meal. Our ecology in the Pérez Zeledón region is perfect for sourcing rice, beans, and tortillas and growing sugarcane and coffee, but most people don't know we're experts at transforming the savory empanada into a sweet treat. With corn from Hacienda AltaGracia's farm as the base, we make viscachas - sweet empanadas made with sugar instead of salt. It tastes delicious with picadillo made from chayote squash, a pear-shaped green fruit packed with fiber, antioxidants, and even weight loss properties.

Auberge du Soleil Zeus, Artichokes, and Aphrodisiacs

couple dining

If you visit Auberge Du Soleil when artichokes are in season, plan to dine over a delectable dish that will have you falling in love over dinner— for more than one reason. Thought to be an aphrodisiac by ancient Romans and Greeks, the artichoke’s scandalous reputation has since stuck. It all started with a story from Greek Mythology, in which Zeus fell in love with a gorgeous mortal woman, and turned her into a goddess.

Mayflower A Getaway To Gilmore Girl's Stars Hollow

Any fan of the television series “Gilmore Girls” has undoubtedly fallen for the show’s fictional town “Stars Hollow.” Boasting legendary New England charm, the parallels between Stars Hollow and Washington Depot, Connecticut are striking— and it’s no accident. In fact, Gilmore Girl’s writer, Amy Sherman-Palladino, drew inspiration for the comedy-drama during her stay at the Mayflower Inn & Spa (later to influence the show’s fictional Dragonfly Inn). Seven seasons later, the cult classic’s first Gilmore Girls Fan Fest was held in Washington Depot, attracting over 1,300 fans in 2016. However, you don’t have to attend a fan fest to get a taste of life in Stars Hollow. In simply exploring the whimsical towns within Litchfield County, you might find yourself retracing the steps of the Gilmore Girls.

Auberge du Soleil Wines of the World

With more than 15,000 bottles on-hand from the hotel’s award-winning wine cellar, wine stewards at Auberge du Soleil have the world at their fingertips. According to Sommelier, Elizabeth Cahill, access to a deep range of global wines makes for intriguing table-side conversations with patrons at the fine-dining Michelin Star Restaurant. "So many of our guests are extremely knowledgeable about wine and they are able to share in great detail their style and varietal preferences. This dialogue is quite helpful in customizing successful wine pairings with each course of their meal. And if they are adventurous we offer side-by-side tastings of a familiar Napa Valley wine with something from another part of the world they may never have heard of before. It’s rewarding to introduce our guests to new wines that instantly become an unexpected favorite."
